A classic commercial for Chesterfield Cigarettes, broadcast live on CBS-TV on the 13th of October 1954. Not one of the best, but still enjoyable.

I don't think the presenter is really a smoker...
The cigarette never leaves his hand.

Gee I thought...
the reason I smoke is because i'm addicted! I didn't know I was looking for comfort!
Watching this made me uncomfortable. I'm going to go ruin my lungs now. Pardon me!
I do enjoy the different advertising styles of the 50s. you can clearly see how the advertising industry grows and tries new things as time passes. In the later 50s, you would rarely see someone just sitting down and talking to you about things so calmly and "matter of fact" like.

This product stinks so much that I give it 4/5.
Stinks up the place.
This commercial is pure solid gold
Rated R due to the fact that they use the word "the".
May offend people who are offended by CBS-TV.
JEICE TOOK UP SMOKING AFTER WATCHING THIS AD.
